Milos Raonic will try to advance to his first quarterfinals of a major event Monday, but he'll have to beat one of the best to get there.

The Canadian, who is ranked 13th in the world, will take on No. 2 Roger Federer in the Round of 16 at the Australian Open tonight.

Raonic will face Federer on TSN following the Serena Willliams-Maria Kirilenko match which starts at 3:30am et/12:30am pt.

Raonic beat German Philipp Kohlschreiber 7-6(4), 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday to advance to the fourth round while Federer, who has four Australian Open titles, outlasted Australian Bernard Tomic 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), 6-1 to set up the match.

The 22-year-old from Thornhill, Ontario has also defeated Jan Hajek and Lukas Rosol in earlier rounds at the Aussie Open

Raonic faced Federer three times in 2012, losing all three meetings.
